Hey all! Have you seen my video about DCS World getting more than 20fps more with one click of a button? It seems like its not about DCS World but its either a GPU issue, software issue or Pimax renderer issue. I get very similar performance testing Hellblade VR trying to use medium to high settings and 110 resolution scale.
I have reported this to the Pimax devs already
It also gives me different results whenever I have vsync on AUTO or OFF in Nvidia control panel.
Once I jump into MENU, the utilization almost always go down again…
ALSO, as you can see. It works using Afterburner as well
Here Im using Nvidia Vsync at default mode:
Here Im running with Nvidia Vsync OFF in Nvidia control panel:
What are the differences between both VSYNC mode (apart from the obvious >__<) ?
From what I can see, the GPU utilization seemed to be ok at first, but dwindle only after the second time you displayed the menu.
Btw, you just ruined my vacation, now all I think about is to come back and test it on Project CARS 2 n__n
Im in the process of testing some other games but been a bit busy today so I couldnt test much.
Tried Project Cars 2 (only with SteamVR) and it gave indeed above 10fps more.
Elite Daagerous had a smaller impact as I remember. Maybe 6fps or so.
It seems to be affecting most games that doesnt utilize the GPU from start.
Also got some reports that it also works to boost on Oculus Rift.
This must be an evil Nvidia glitch lol
Oh btw. In Project Cars 2 even if the fps increased with 10 or more fps, I got a lot of flicker so it was not usable.
But smart smoothing was really working great on 5K+ after applying that fix! No judder no flicker at all.
It worked with me (I have a Pimax 5K+) jumped from 37/38 fps to 55 fps. With some little interesting differences:
I couldn’t run DCS without SteamVR, even by importing in PiTool, so I replicated this trcik with SteamVR on.
I have to keep Smart Smoothing ON, otherwise in the HMD only, I see a lot of ghosting…
I have an RTX2080ti blower edition, so high temperatures by default already. I didn’t have it overclocked , but to trigger the trick I used MSI Afterburner by overclockin a little bit and then RESET:
1 - increase a little the Core clock (+30MHz) and Memory Clock (+30MHz)
2- Increase the TempLimit to 89 degrees
3- Click on RESET
Does it start the 2.5 Beta of DCS? I tried it but have not gotten the full effect. @SweViver - if you find the time, could you maybe post a screenshot of your settings in DCS, Nvidia and Steam? I have similar hardware but go around 45 FPS - must be missing something (I do have a g sync monitor running…)
